Across the broad lawn, a loudspeaker carried the sounds of Mass (in Spanish) almost as if the ghosts of the Spanish founders of the mission were still trying to convert the locals.

And I found a quiet scene unfolding beyond the ruins of a never-completed mission building.

  1. It would have been a good thing for the original inhabitants had all the missions reached the “never-completed” status. Good for photographers too.
